25 Nov – Malaysian movie streaming platform, eWayang.com, not only provides viewers the comfort of watching movies from their homes, but also allows them to do good deeds while doing so.
For every movie ticket worth RM15, RM1 from it will be donated to the COVID-19 fund to help lessen the burden of the Malaysian government and the Ministry of Health Malaysia (KKM).
According to eWayang Project Manager, DjPool Soul Masters, aside from assisting the government and KKM, the platform will also be a medium for film producers to show their movies, through their recent collaboration with the Malaysian Film Producers Association (PFM).
"I believe that viewers' contributions can be used to help KKM. We fully support the government's effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic".
"We're only taking RM1 from tickets priced at RM15 through every purchase of film on ewayang.com. it's nothing burdensome," he said, as quoted by BH Online.
